Nothing happens in this universe without GOD's permission and that includes sin. Jesus is the Lamb slain before the foundation of the world, which means that GOD knew that Satan would rebel against Him and that the world would fall into sin before He even created anything. It also means that Jesus agreed to pay the debt for all of our sins long before the first sin was ever committed.

Christ's sacrifice was not some kind of desperate "plan B" just in case GOD's "plan A" didn't work out. GOD created the world with the full knowledge that sin and evil would enter it.

As horrific as eugenics is and the terrible, dehumanizing potentials of genetic modifications, it gives one a certain peace to know that GOD is in charge and nothing is going to happen that He didn't already foresee and allow before the creation of the universe.
